Starbreeze (recovering from its financial slump) and Overkill Studios have confirmed that we don’t have to wait very long for the new Payday.
In the spring of 2021, Starbreeze and Overkill talked about releasing Payday 3 for unnamed consoles and PC in 2023. Now, we can see on Steam that they’re serious about it. Almir Listo, Starbreeze’s global band director, wrote a message there, which reads: “A warm welcome to seasoned heisters and newcomers alike to the community hub for Payday 3! My name is Almir Listo, and I’m the Head of Community here at Starbreeze Studios, and on behalf of myself and the crew, we’d first of all just like to say: It’s Payday!
We’ve seen a lot of questions about whether Payday 3 would be coming to Steam or not. We are proud to announce that this Community Hub will be our primary platform on PC, just like it is for Payday 2. We love spending our time together with you, heisters, and we look forward to sharing more news and exciting details about Payday 3 as we draw closer to its release. Since the store page is live, you can now wishlist Payday 3! If you’re interested in the game, click the link, and you’ll get notified when anything is interesting to be shared. We’ll post all updates to the Steam Community Hub, so make sure to follow as well to ensure you get everything Payday 3 in 2023.
There probably are a lot of questions about Payday 3 that you want to ask, and while we can’t answer all of them (yet!), we want to share a space where the community can talk about anything Payday 3 as we get closer to launch. On that note, we’ve opened up the Steam Community Hub to start using its discussion board. If you have a question you’ve been wondering about, ask it there, and we’ll do our best to answer!
If you are new to Payday and the art of robbing banks and getting paid, we wish you an exceptional welcome! Any questions you might have, feel free to ask any of the veteran Payday heisters in the community or speak to us, developers. To all the veteran heisters, it’s time to bring your old crew back together and dust off your finest masks—because this is the year of Payday 3! Keep those helmets flying!” Listo wrote.
We don’t know much, but it sounds optimistic, especially how they put together a special video for Payday 3 (we won’t write the name in all caps…), which is coming this year for PC and consoles (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series would be our guess). The publisher will be Prime Matter (part of the Embracer Group).
